Tradesman Saver’s Building Contractor Insurance


Our standard cover is:

  • £1 million cover for public and products liability (with an option to increase to £2 million or £5 million)
  • £10,000 cover for any financial loss (£50K cover optional)
  • Worldwide liability cover for temporary work abroad for up to 14 days (excluding the USA and Canada)

Tradesman Saver’s building contractors’ insurance provides cover for public liability, which is perhaps one of the most significant covers. This offers protection for you if your work causes injury to a client of member of the public, or if you damage their property. For example, you may owe compensation if you accidentally drop a brick from height and it lands on your customer’ car, or if a member of the public trips over your building equipment left on the pavement and is injured.

These claims can be costly, but having the right insurance coverage means you won’t be responsible for paying the expenses. All policies cover you for financial loss, legal expenses, and more. We offer a range of insurance policies for contractors, including electrical, damp proofing, and fencing.

At Tradesman Saver, we encourage all contractors consider taking out optional insurance for extra coverage. If you employ a team of people as part of your business, you must legally have employer’s liability insurance. This protects you against any injuries sustained by your team, and the financial ramifications it may have. Working as a building contractor, you may be exposed to a number of hazardous situations and potential accidents, which you need to be protected against. Personal accident insurance allows your business to continue trading, even if you have sustained an injury in or out of the workplace, that may leave you unable to work. Get in touch with our team to begin crafting your ideal insurance package.
